This activity meets the ABR's criteria for a self-assessment activity in the ABR Maintenance of Certification program. The ARRS has been granted SAM Deemed Status by the American Board of Radiology (ABR). This allows the ARRS to develop and implement, without prior ABR review, enduring SAMs that satisfy ABR Part II MOC requirements. The modules designated as SAMs qualify as self-assessment modules and meet the ABR SAM requirements. 1.00 SAM credit will be given in the ABR category C05 Neuroradiology for completion of this activity.
